Forum: macromedia Subject: confusion on the CDROM collection



I work with the Internet Archive, and I would like to correct some confusion. Short answer: people can not download the CDROM contents from the Internet Archive. There are 5 that are available because the Internet Archive got permission from the rights holder.

Our statement that Macromedia donated 10,000 CDROMs is incorrect. What Macromedia graciously did was to let us use their catalog of the CDROMs sent to them through the Made With Macromedia program. The also let our staff examine the CDROM's so that we can ensure the catalog is correct and facilitate contacting rightsholders to see if they would be interested in access to their materials.

We are very excited about providing access to any materials that people would like to be preserved. Please contact me, brewster@archive.org or more efficiently info@archive.org if you have any materials you would like to be added to the archive.

I'm wondering how useful it really is to post these 10,000 titles.

Oh, wait. I guess it was pretty useful. I'm here and I'm waiting...guess I'll browse the rest of the site while the "rights holders" are contacted (although it seems that if Macromedia's license agreement allows them to do hand you guys these titles, it might also extend into the right to post that material...thoughts?)

No, macromedia does not hold the rights to the content of the cdroms. these have to be cleared explicitly with the owners of these rights (publishers and authors).
